    Share to Facebook message


    Hi
    Basically I'm looking for an app which lets me use the "share" function in the charm bar, to share photo's/youtube vid's, etc... to a facebook message. Right now I can only share it to my wall via the "people" app.

    Any of you know such an app which has this feature??

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Martin,

    Give our Facebook app a try: Metro Social (or direct link here: Metro Social app for Windows in the Windows Store) we just added a live tile and share charm support.

    Thanks,
    Tommy

    What he said.
    Only supported apps will work seamlessly with any given OS.

    Unfortunately your app, and no app I can find can share things through the facebook message system. Only option I have is share to wall which every app can.

    Martin,

    Ahh, sorry about that - I didn't read close enough about you wanting to sharing to a FB message. I just looked at the Facebook API's for sending messages - apparently it looks like 3rd party clients are unable to send private messages, due to spam fears (source: android - Create New Message using Facebook Graph API - Stack Overflow).

    Thanks,
    Tommy

    Hi,
    There's an app called "Fast for Facebook" where I can effectively send messages from.
    I don't know anything about programming, but maybe that's the workaround they speak about at Stack Overflow.
    Good luck with your app though!

    Or you can try the "Share All" app. It's FREE.
